Why "king of Saxony"?[edit]

He reigned over a great part of East Francia. His territory was more than Saxony, it included also Francia (todays Franconia and Hassia) and great parts of Lothringia (todays Rheinland and Palatinate). So why only "king of Saxony"? — Preceding unsigned comment added by ManfredV (talkcontribs) 21:25, 5 December 2013 (UTC)

And again my question: why only "king of Saxony"? Whas this his official title? He and his brothers where "Kings of East francian".About his realm german wiki says: "Ihm wurde bei der Reichsteilung seines Vaters 865 das größte ostfränkische Teilreich zugewiesen, das aus der ostfränkischen Francia (= Franken), Sachsen und Thüringen bestand; 870 kam mit dem Vertrag von Meerssen auch das östliche Lotharingien hinzu. In all diesen Gebieten übernahm er nach seines Vaters Tod 876 die Herrschaft" ManfredV (talk) 08:51, 27 June 2015 (UTC)
